Our weekend tour to Kirzhach – Zarechye – Alexandrov

Meet the reviving Russian province: Kirzhach - the Phoenix bird of our time

Discover Kirzhach - the ancient city of silk merchants, skillful carvers-arguns, copper-smelters and astronauts, coming to life from hibernation and turning into a new tourist destination!

 

We invite you to a joint trip to Kirzhach on November 30, 2019 - to one of the most unknown ancient Russian cities, undeservedly deprived of the attention of mass tourists, reviving from hibernation, thanks to the efforts of city enthusiasts and patrons.

Valery, our Kirzach tour guideValery, our Kirzach tour guideValery, our wonderful tour guide, will introduce Kirzhach to us. She will give us a fascinating atmospheric tour of her hometown, the main attraction of which is the ancient Annunciation Convent, founded by St. Sergius of Radonezh in 1358.

The guide will tell us about the rich historical past of the city, about the origin and development of silk weaving and carpentry, about the production of copper-brass products, about the leading role of merchants and entrepreneurs in the development of the city.

We'll learn about Yevgeny Fyodorov, the most famous entrepreneur and philanthropist in Kirzhach, a winemaker, writer, producer, restaurateur, scientist, creator of museums and monuments, who calls his hometown "the whole universe" that can be made a “tourist Mecca”, and who believes that it’s necessary to create 16 attractions in it.

Through the efforts of Yevgeny Fyodorov and at the expense of his funds, the merchant part of the city with houses, taverns, and stone-paved streets is being restored in the city. He has already created 13 tourist attractions. 

We will see many of them. Including the only in Russia Copper and Brass Museum  and the Museum of Argun carvers, the houses of merchants Marayev, Karabanov and Doctor Krasovsky, the Sovienok children's theater, as well as a wooden pedestrian Typographic bridge, 555 meters long, listed in the Russian Book of Records.

At the end of the tour, we will peep into the Pogrebok cell, where we are promised a tasting of original, not sold in stores light wines, spirits and juices made from fruits grown in the Kirzhel garden of Evgeny Fyodorov.

The tour includes a lunch break in the pretty Caramel Cafe, where there is a large selection of dishes.

We will also have time to visit the souvenir shop, after which we will go to Moscow.

 

For those who would like to extend their stay in the Russian province and get a new experience, we offer a choice of 2-day travel options.

Option 1. We leave Moscow on Friday, November 29 in the evening, in order to visit the estate of the manufacturer S. I. Dumnov in the village of Zarechye. There, the hospitable hostess Galina Maslennikova will offer us a Russian style dinner-meal and a Russian bathhouse, as well as overnight in the spacious rooms of a 19th-century house.

The next day after breakfast, we’ll move to Kirzhach (half an hour drive) for a city tour, and in the evening after visiting the city, we’ll go back to Moscow.

 

Option 2. We arrive in Kirzhach in advance on Friday, November 29, in the evening and stay overnight, for example, in the Krasovskikh guest house-museum. Since 1854, the family of the doctor Krasovsky lived in this house. Evgeny Fyodorov has restored the house, while the architecture and interior of the house retained the features of that era, but were supplemented by a small number of modern elements. Here, antique furniture is elegantly combined with spectacular design solutions and each of the four hotel rooms has its own special style. Web site https://domkrasovskih.ru
